As you explore the website, you will find information designed to assist you in utilizing the many programs and services we offer.

The first of its kind in the state of Tennessee, the Cookeville Higher Education Campus vision is to serve the citizens of the region by preparing our graduates to succeed as leaders, lifelong learners and responsible citizens in both a local and global society. Our faculty, staff and students will actively engage in service to their community, state and country.

As part of the Tennessee Board of Regents system, Cookeville Higher Education Campus was created to provide opportunities that optimize educational offerings for students in Cookeville, Putnam County and the entire region. Our campus is made up of Tennessee Tech University and community college partners, each offering distinct programs. This unique collaboration allows us to assemble a community of educators committed to providing excellence in student services and instruction. Our mission also includes a strong workforce development initiative. The Highlands Economic Partnership will play a vital role in developing and providing education and training to meet the needs of business and industry.

Tennessee Promise offers two years of tuition-free community or technical college to high school graduates beginning with the class of 2015. Cookeville Higher Education Campus supports the Promise through a commitment to:

  • Student success
  • Academic integrity
  • A seamless transition between two- and four-year schools
  • A learning environment that supports personal and professional growth

Higher education is now more accessible in Tennessee than ever. It is our hope that you will join us at Cookeville Higher Education Campus as we seize the opportunity that Tennessee Promise creates.

Sharing the Promise,
